First Moon Circle

first moon circles

First Moon Circles are a once in a lifetime empowering menstrual education and celebration for girls aged 9-12. Children can learn about puberty and periods in a nurturing circle experience so they feel really prepared, informed, positive and excited to have their first periods, at their menarche rite of passage. We also have a special mother-daughter celebration to role model to children that they can talk openly about the changes they’re going through, so they don’t feel menstrual shame or awkwardness.

The way we experience our First Moon (first period) shapes our beliefs about our own worth, power and value as a cyclical being, which stays with us forever. Your child will love this beautiful, magical 3 hour circle where they can learn all about how they can look after themself as they grows up.

Covering self-care, and teaching children how to get the best out of their superpowers as they begins their menstrual cycle, First Moon Circles are doing period education differently. Our circles are proving a fun and enjoyable way for girls and children who have or will have periods to learn, play, and feel supported at a pivotal time in their lives.

at their first moon circle your child will learn:​

What periods are and what happens during the whole menstrual cycle (because there is so much more to it than just managing blood!)

The signs and stages of puberty so she can work out when her first period may come

Period care: product options, play and practice so when she needs to choose and use a product, she’s done it before

An overview of menstrual cycle self-care so she can nurture herself and be nurtured as her energy changes from ovulation to menstruation.

Receiving mother’s wisdom and well-wishes so she knows its not just she who bleeds, and that she has a village of people to support her through the process.

Samhain Magick: Embracing the Descent into the Mystery of Autumn

Samhain Magick: Embracing the Descent into the Mystery of Autumn

the witches say the veils between the worlds of the dead and the living, the seen and unseen, are thinnest at samhain, the name of the cross-quarter sabbat (celebration) between autumn equinox and winter solstice.
mystics, pagans and those who appreciate the seasons and cycles of life find much magick, power and transformation available in listening to what the spirits tell us, and in facing the darkness, arriving frosts and scent of death on the air of samhain, because it gives us a chance to go inwards, to reflect on whether you’re living your most authentic life, and to discern what needs to die so you can come closer to your truest essence.

Wise Power: How Your Menstrual Cycle Prepares You For Menopause with Red School

Wise Power book interview with Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer on Wild Flow Podcast

Your menstrual cycle is teaching you how to work with your inner power, ready to become a wise woman at menopause. The wise women founders of Red School Alexandra Pope and Sjanie Hugo Wurlitzer have released their cutting edge book Wise Power: Discover the Liberating Power of Menopause to Awaken Authority, Purpose and Belonging. I’m THRILLED to have had the opportunity to chat with the authors and Menstruality leaders about how we can practice menstrual cycle awareness as a lifestyle that ultimately builds our self-trust, resilience, and capacity for presence, so that when the time comes, we can surrender, die and be reborn through the “mother of all initiations” that is Menopause.

Coming of Age Wisdom for Mothers and Daughters with Arahni Lion and Jo Rockendorfer

coming of age wisdom for mothers and daughters

imagine a world where mothers were given sacred space to welcome their daughters intentionally into their coming of age rite of passage. and where girls were welcomed into circle with other mothers and daughters to find deep wisdom, loving support and a chance to experience true sisterhood all before their 13th birthday. there is a place on earth: it’s called the seeding wisdom journey held annually in the illawarra (nsw) by wise women arahni lion and jo rockendorfer. If you’ve ever wished you were more supported, more seen and heard, more understood and respected in your own maiden years, this is a truly special way of healing that part of you, and to give your child the best start to a conscious, empowered, embodied and connected womanhood. I know that when my daughters are of age, we will be taking the journey together, one by one.

Arahni and Jo share the story of why and how they created this potent experience, what happens within the journey, and why this kind of initiatory journey is needed now, more than ever.

Wild Womb One Day Retreat

wild womb retreat with Charlotte Pointeaux

awaken and honour your womb’s inner wisdom and power with Charlotte Pointeaux’ Wild Womb Retreat. Your womb is a powerful centre of life force within you, whether or not you have a menstrual cycle, or even a womb. when you come into an honouring relationship with your wombspace as an energy centre, your inner wild feminine awakens. As an energy centre, your womb is your home of creativity, sensuality, sexuality, feminine power, your cyclic nature, and is a portal into connection with your red thread lineage of women who have gone before and after you. 

Since humans evolved, cultures have celebrated the Goddess as personification of creative woman and her capacity to spin all life from her womb. Blood has always been revered as nature’s magickal elixir, with regenerative properties, and the cyclical nature of the menstrual cycle treasured as a mirror of the natural order and rhythm of the cosmos.

In today’s world, few of us were initiated into the Cycle Mysteries as young women, and were not celebrated, supported or honoured at our first blood rite of passage known as Menarche. Instead, the modern world has forced most girls to distrust their body, fear her symptoms, discredit her intuition, and direct her creative, fertile, sensual and sexual powers towards the opposite sex. 

As such, on the whole, disconnected, disembodied, disempowered girls become disconnected, disembodied, disempowered women, until we reclaim our inner Goddess natures for ourselves. 

Intuition: When to Say No and Love Yourself First

Did you know that on average, Australian females experience between 450-500 periods in her lifetime, with the average cycle spanning between 21-35 days, and the average bleed lasting between 2-7 days?

Once we begin menstruating (at menarche – pronounced “men-ar-kee”) which occurs anywhere these days between roughly the ages of 8-15, and commonly around ages 12-13, we begin our monthly bleed (menstrual cycle) until we reach menopause which occurs approximately at the age of 50 (although again, this can occur much earlier or later as it is do individual).

After menarche our periods will be irregular for most of our teen years until the rhythm is established and our hormones settle into their natural, beautiful cycle. You might notice that some months you bleed for longer, or more heavily than other times, or that your cycle isn’t the same length each time. This is all ok – everyone’s cycle is different.

How To Set Embodied Intentions For The New Year

how to set embodied intentions for the new year with Charlotte Pointeaux- Wild Feminine Cycle Coach

When you want to create real change, its important that you don’t follow what you think you should be focusing on. instead, ask yourself what’s true for you. how will you know? your body will tell you.

Have you picked a word for the year yet? A New Year’s resolution? Is your year mapped out with strict timelines and a whole lotta hustle? Maybe so… But if this approach doesn’t feel quite right to you, I’d love to offer you a different way: a more feminine, embodied, feelings-based way of setting intentions for the year ahead. In this episode I’m sharing my embodied intention-setting technique which I guide all my private wild feminine coaching clients through, so you can get crystal-clear, alive, juicy and deeply inspired to call in your most luscious year yet.

What’s more, the cycle mysteries teach us that New Years Day is not the correct time to be declaring “New Year, New Me!”. Instead, there’s meant to be an in-built hibernation, restorative time to let the death of the last year complete, and the visioning and dreaming of the new year to occur before we rush in all guns blazing with our new habits.

I suggest we allow ourselves one Moon, until New Moon (22nd Jan 2023) to let our visions become clear, so we’re sure we’re choosing the right path that honours our capacity, desires, needs and energy, rather than overriding and pushing through. Let’s resist the urge to overdo it and then quit at the first hurdle, all burnt out, and instead take a cyclical, embodied approach right from the get-go.

Sex And The Menstrual Cycle on wild flow podcast

I’ve been wanting to have a conversation about sex and sexuality on the podcast for some time now. Sex, desire, sexuality, and sexual pleasure are such taboos and often get left to the wayside and yet its such an intrinsic part of the menstrual cycle, and of our humanity. This conversation has left me feeling nourished, connected, soft, curious and whole. I hope that in listening you feel that way too. 

Allow me to introduce you to Ruby. Ruby May is a devotee of the Yin, facilitator, community & connection catalyst, midwifing a world in which cyclical awareness is integrated into the way we relate and shape the world. 

With a background in working professionally with intimacy and sexuality and a stint working as a dominatrix, Ruby became fascinated in the phenomena of Feminine leadership and how the womb could become a gateway into embodying this.

She is the community leader for the graduates of the Menstruality Leadership programme for the Red School, the biggest education centre globally for Menstrual Cycle Awareness and her own initiative, Know Your Flow.  Both support the cultivation of community for developing body literacy, inspired leadership and social change, with over 200 members from over 20 countries.

The author of “Know Your Flow: A cycle Tracking Journal for Personal and Planetary Revolution” and creatrix behind”The Game”, Ruby currently lives in the creative cauldron of Berlin.

Listen, enjoy, share with your partner and friends, and allow this conversation to inspire you into deeper relationship with yourself and your cyclical experience. Happy listening

Welcome To The Pleasure Club

Pleasure. What is pleasure? Does the word fill you with shame, guilt or uneasy feelings? Do you feel like pleasure isn’t for you? Does this potent word conjure up thoughts of sex, and how comfortable you are with your own sexuality?

Pleasure is so much more than this, and my guest on Wild Flow the Podcast, Rowena Hobbins, is here to invite you into reframing pleasure as an essential part of your path to healing and empowerment. In fact she’s here to invite you to join the Pleasure Club!

This juicy chat with my soul sister and biz bestie dives deep into:

Our own personal relationships, attitudes and experiences of pleasure both in the past and present,

What pleasure means to us, and what it means to you, and why it’s not all about orgasms,

What blocks you from relating to and accessing pleasure,

Why you can’t open to pleasure until you’ve done the deep inner work, looking at childhood patterns and conditioning around pleasure first,

Why pleasure is essential to cultivate and learn to hold in your body, and how this missing link has been life changing for both of us

and how Rowena is on a mission to invite women to reclaim their pleasure birthright in her new Pleasure Club in 2023 (this sounds seriously amazing!)
